Bargaining Session #14

Good afternoon, Colleagues.
I hope this message finds you well. We conducted our 14th bargaining session with NNU today.

Our discussion topics were related to:

  1. Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) Side Letter
  2. Section 12.1 (Salaries)
  3. Uniform Voucher availability after probation
  4. Section 12.11 (Temporary Clinical Support Nurse)

We’ll meet again for bargaining on Jan. 9th , when we begin the first of five bargaining sessions scheduled throughout the month. In the interim, our Bargaining Team will be busy behind the scenes preparing for the January sessions. I speak for all of us when I say we’re eager to return to the table to continue the progress that’s been made so far.

Finally, please be reminded that the Bargaining Team will be joining Chief Nursing Officer Emily Chase for two nursing town halls at 8 a.m. January 3rd and 12 p.m. January 4th . We’ll discuss the status of negotiations and answer your questions on the proposals (you can submit your questions anonymously in advance here). In preparation for the town halls, you can visit to learn about initial economic offers, our tuition proposals, and the tentative agreements that have been reached so far.

On behalf of the Bargaining Team, I extend wishes for a warm and merry holiday season.
